The IGS UK is the UK chapter of the International Geosynthetic Society.
The aims of the IGS UK chapter are to collect and distribute knowledge about geosynthetics & their applications by facilitating conferences, symposiums, evening presentations & research in order to promote the advancement of the state of the art of geosynthetics & to improve the communication and understanding of geosynthetic products between designers, manufacturers and users of the products.
IGS UK Chapter & European Association of Geosynthetic Manufacturers (EAGM)
“COMPARATIVE LCA OF GEOSYNTHETICS versus CONVENTIONAL CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS”
On behalf of the European Association of Geosynthetic product Manufacturers (EAGM) a study was presented with 4 comparisons of conventional constructions in comparison with geosynthetic constructions. In this study the impact of nine impact category indicators for e.g. Cumulative Energy Demand (CED) was compared for both construction technologies (conventional vs. geosynthetic).
Similar work was done by different Manufactures for other cases and one more example will be presented.
